Being a foodie I have had many delicious meals in my days. The best meal I have had to date has to be from this amazing restaurant, Deseo at the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, AZ. From the moment you descend the stairs into this Cuban inspired restaurant you feel the passion from the very talented Chefs. You walk in to see them hard at work preparing meals. This gave me a great sense of comfort knowing they would give my meal the same time and attention. Upon being seated you are offered warm rolls called Pao de Qeijo, that’s recipe originated in Brazil. They are naturally gluten free and are made from Yucca and cheese. They are pure heaven! Having traveled to Brazil and enjoyed them fresh I can say these are the closest in taste I have enjoyed in the states.
There are so many delicious dishes to choose from the menu but I always choose the same thing.
Beef tenderloin “churrasco style”
crab mojo / peruvian potato / tomato / horseradish chimichurri
It is amazing! With its perfectly cooked beef and delicious crab mojo it is the perfect surf and turf meal. The spices are spot on and need no additional salt or peppering. For dessert I am a huge fan of the yummy rice pudding dulce de leche sauce. It ends the meal with leaving your palate sweetened and satisfied. Yum!
Whether we are celebrating my college graduation, our anniversary, a birthday or any other special day you can bet we are celebrating it at the one and only Deseo restaurant. If you are ever in the area, don’t miss the meal of your lifetime. Make sure to visit Deseo restaurant at the Westin Keirland Resort.
